Based on Frank Silver's real experience with a Greek fruit stand owner who started every sentence with "Yes," "Yes! We Have No Bananas" is a popular novelty song written by Silver and Irving Cohn for Eddie Cantor's performance in the 1922 Broadway revue "Make It Snappy." Billy Jones was the first to place on the charts with his recording—his version was number one for five weeks in 1923.
